In Edward Hopper’s New York Interior, a woman has her back to us. Caught in a private moment, she looks as though she has a needle and thread in her right hand and may be sewing something. Dark walls frame either side of the scene, and the artist has positioned us as voyeurs, looking at the woman from just outside her window without her knowing that we can see her. The inspiration for New York Interior was the quick views of people’s lives that Hopper glimpsed through windows as he rode by on New York’s Third Avenue elevated train.
